In the first on Tuesday 11 July, 2023 11:00=1300 East African time 10.00-12.00 Southern African time we ask, how do issues of climate justice intersect with constitutional and legal protection of health rights? What issues, advocacy and actions does this raise for the region?

EQUINET REGIONAL MEETING MARCH 2023 - Expanding promising practice on urban health and wellbeing

EQUINET hosted a regional meeting in Nairobi Kenya on March 15 and 16 on Expanding promising practice for sustained urban and periurban wellbeing in east and southern Africa. The meeting gathered people from different sectors, local authorities, civil society and technical organisations working in various areas of urban health, as well as organisations working on climate justice, and on extractives as sites of peri-urban growth, to share and review evidence on practice features that could be scaled up across countries. The meeting explored the implications for engaging on commercial practices and responses to climate change. It included also parallel sessions to build photojournalism skills to strengthen communication  of promising practice. The meeting report is available on the EQUINET website.  Read further on the work on urban health and watch out for future grant calls on urban health on this site. Please contact us if you are interested in this area of work and have interesting experience, tools and practice to share!
